Film image preferences H or V


Active Member
This is a question for those who shoot film and have used both V and H series cameras.

When you look at your final image (positive or negative / colour or B&W), which image do you prefer - that produced on an H camera or produced on a V camera?

I'm not wanting to raise issues of equipment performance etc.; just your personal preference for the images produced - do you see visible differences (aside from obvious format differences); do you prefer the look of one to another - regardless of what produces the look (eg lens differences) etc.?

I make those qualifications to avoid discusion about the relative camera system merits - here I'm only interested in how you feel about the end results.

Thanks for sharing your views.
